This 2015 GMC Sierra Has Better WiFi Than My Office (Nicer Seats Too)

We all saw GM's Super Bowl ad: "if you had 4G LTE OnStar in your truck you could stream the game!" I shrugged. How good could WiFi be, bottled into a cellphone signal and piped through a pickup truck?

Is This The Last Vehicle You Can Get With Old Sealed-Beam Headlights?

I suspect we take for granted just how amazing modern headlights are. They're bright, precise, and each and every car can have ones custom-designed to fit just the right shape. We live in a golden age of light. But some of us remember a much darker time. And I think there's just one vehicle left that remembers, too. » 11/04/14 8:45pm 11/04/14 8:45pm
